DaddyG's_ LOUIS_ JORDAN -Collection




Louis Jordan, born Jul 8, 1908, Died Feb 4, 1975. Vocals, Alto Sax, East Coast Blues, Jump Blues, Swing, Urban Blues. Effervescent saxophonist Louis Jordan was one of the chief architects and prime progenitors of the R&B idiom. His pioneering use of jumping shuffle rhythms in a small combo context was copied far and wide during the 1940's. Jordan's sensational hit-laden run with Decca Records contained a raft of seminal performances, featuring inevitably infectious backing by his band, The Tympany Five, and Jordan's own searing alto sax and street corner jive-loaded sense of humor. He was one of the first Black enternainers to sell appreciably in the pop section. His Decca duet mates included Bing Cosby, Louis Armstrong, and Ella Fitzgerals. From 1942 to 1951, Jordan scored an astonishing 57 CHARTED R&b Hits, all on Decca, beginning the humorous blues, "I'm Gonna Leave You On the Outskirts of Town" and finishing with "Weak-Minded Blues." In between, he drew up what amounted to an easily folowedblueprint for the development of R&B. (and for that matter, Rock and Roll)--The excessively swinging shuffles of Bill Haley and the Comets were directly descended fromJordan. Haley often pointed to his Decca labelmate as profoundly influencing his own approach. "G.I. Jive" "Caldonia" "Buz Me" "Choo-Choo Ch-Boogie" "Ain't That Just Like a Woman" "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens" "Boogie Woogie Blue Plate" "Beans and Cornbread" "Saturday Night Fish Fry" and "Blue Light Boogie" -- Every one of his classics topped the R&B lists, and there were plenty more that did precisely the same thing. Black audiences coast-to-coast were breathlessly Jitter-bugging to Jordan's jumping jive (and one suspects, more than a few Whites picked up their heels to those same platters as well. It might seem a sgtretch to say that Louis Jordan helped to pave the way for everyone from Led Zeppelin, U2, and The Beatles to James Brown, Marvin Gaye and Parliament/Funkadelic, but when get down to it, that's a very fair and accurate assertation. The jump blues/swing/early R&B innovator definitely played a crucial role in the development of rock & roll and soul music, and it's been argued that he was the first rock & roller. His recordings were primary listeing for Little Richard, Etta James, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, James Brown, Bill Haley, Ruth Brown and so many othrs.
